Wanted! Man Has Taken Dogs From Shelter And At Least One Appears To Have Been Sexually Abused

Police in Aiken County, South Carolina, are hoping to find a man who has repeatedly stolen dogs from an animal shelter. The suspect is believed to have sexually assaulted at least one of the dogs who was taken.

Aiken County Shelter manager Bobby Arthurs tells WJBF News, "It’s an ongoing case with the Sheriff’s Office. It has been going on since 2019, February to be exact." He described the abuse the most recently stolen dog suffered, stating, "We suspected that our medical team has evaluated the dog and there appears to be some bruising in the vaginal part of the dog. Yeah, highly suspect it that it’s happened."

This is an abhorrent criminal and he must be found, charged, and put away! Please sign the petition now - this man must be apprehended!

Anyone with information is asked to contact the authorities. Please call the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office at (803) 648-6811. Or, via Midlands CrimeStoppers. To provide a tip, call 888-CRIME-SC (888-274-6372) or visit midlandscrimestoppers.com.
